I became a caregiver when I took care of my sister in law's father during his last days(hospice case).prior to that I have my experience working with an Home Health Care in Calgary Alberta.Being a caregiver you learn how to become a compassionate and caring person for elderly people. When I took care of and elderly lady for five years when she was 97 years old until she reach 102 years old..and be able to give her the best of comfort she needed cooked for her food, took her for her doctor's appointment, assisted her in all her needs while she was walking until she became a bed bound.. in the biggest achievement I ever done when grandma bound in a wheel chair..I know I will do my best to make their life comfortable as a companion caregiver.
